We know you are a huge patriot and fiercely loyal citizen of the United States, but what makes you most American? When the rest of the world thinks of America, they think of the land of opportunity and the ability to achieve the American dream. As Americans, we realize that it takes a few special and purely American traits to make their dreams come true. We want to find out which one of yours stands out the most!

As you go through the quiz, keep a picture of the stars and stripes in your mind's eye. You don't need to blast the "Star Spangled Banner" as you answer, but telling us about the American traditions and holidays you love most will give us a good idea what American trait you have the most of running through your veins. Are you so incredibly independent that forgetting your wallet would make you rather starve during the workday than ask a coworker to spot you? The responses you choose will undoubtedly show us your most red, white, and blue trait! 

Put on your most ambitious attitude, tell us all about yourself, and your love for your country! When you've finished, we'll be happy to let you know which American trait makes you who you are. No one ever got anywhere by sitting still, so let's get this quiz started!
